Gay Themed Movies

It was always very difficult to find gay themed movies in Malaysia but in recent years, such GTM had become more common and one can pick them up at the DVD store. My local friendly DVD store do stock them but it is more on a hit-or-miss affair.

As one says, if there is a niche, someone is going to fill in that niche - right, for gay themed movies, there is a local gay-owned DVD centre and there are hundred of GTM titles in their catalogues for one to review and choose from. This is one place we visited regularly!

So I was at my local friendly DVD store yesterday and I saw beautifully boxed sets of the gay (soft-porn) series "Dante's Cove" for Seasons 1 and 2. I wondered how many actually watch it for the storyline :-) However, there seemed to be a fair number of people who actually watch this series ..... these boxed sets were snapped up like hot cakes. My other half snapped up one set as well :-) much to my surprise - he's usually the one going for serious GTM movies and not those with lots of skin and beef!!

Not to be outdone, I went for the boxed set of Pier Pasolini's films - many of which I first saw in the 70's in the UK. This boxed sets included the full uncensored versions of most of his films - including the more notorious :

THE DECAMERON
THE CANTERBURY TALES
ARABIAN NIGHTS
SALO OR THE 120 DAYS OF SODOM

The last one was banned in most countries.

This is a gem of a boxed set as I had been looking for his films for many years and it was indeed a rare find to get them all in a single set!

I always like light-hearted gay themed movies and, that afternoon, was pleased to find "Wedding Wars" which was a 2006 TV movie about gay people in the US going on strike to protest a governor's support of a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages.

It was a fluffy movie, with some nice tongue-in-cheek humour and some real corny bits but it is a nice feel good movie for a couple staying in on a late Saturday evening :-)

Watch it :-)

Wow. Another Malaysian who mentioned Pasolini's film. I did watch Salo. And I like Decameron best. : )

does anyone think porn is the only business still thriving during the credit cruch? I think many folks seek refuge in buying and wanking porn during the crunch
